Jamie Lee’s late-night TV debut on Conan

Jamie Lee made her late-night TV debut the other night on Conan. You may have seen her almost making the finals of the “final” Last Comic Standing.

Let’s recap. Good for Jay Pharoah! All of the hubbuzz was about Jay earning the Obama impersonation, but here he is in the cold open as Michael Strahan as Kelly Ripa’s new co-host on ABC morning-time chatty chat. Nasim Pedrad is hotter than Kelly Ripa. Let’s not talk about it. Instead, let’s talk about how SNL head writer Seth Meyers also was up for Ripa’s co-host job,...
